Modern in her attitude to life and art, Kathleen Sauerbier (1903-1991) painted outstanding landscapes, and also portraits, streetscapes and still lifes. In her native South Australia she became one of the first artists to respond to the beautiful Fleurieu Peninsula with a truly modernist approach, while she lived and painted also in Melbourne, London and France. Sauerbier is notable not only for her limited use of colour, fluid line-work and simplified forms but also her artistic influence on fellow Australian painter Horace Trenerry.
